    Hey, hub'bers

    I've just posted about "dofollow" and "nofollow" on my blog, as this question is one of the most frequently asked questions. If you have a "dofollow" blog, please add it in comments area. I will be "bookmarking" this post on 125 social sites, so you will definitely get more traffic to your blog!

    Thank goodness.  I've never known what those terms meant, but didn't want to ask since everyone seemed to know.

    Thank-you for posting this.

    Btw, I don't have a blog yet, maybe I should, but I have a question about the: "Rate it" on the comment. That thing will only let the surfer rate it but it doesn't rearranging the votes to show the top rated comment on top right?

    And how do you know if a blog is dofollow?

    Here's my link: http://jimshubpages.blogspot.com/

    I didn't see blogspot on the list of dofollow blogs, but you also indicated yours is a partial list.

    Blogspot and wordpress.com blogs do not have followed comments.

    BTW, you've listed hubpages in the dofollow list, and I believe comment links are not followed in hubpages.  The only thing followed is the link to your account page on hubpages.

    Links in your content are nofollow unless you reach a certain score. I don't know if you have to reach a profile score or a hub score. However, I've heard your score will drop if you don't login for a while. So you have to continually write every for Hub Pages. I'm starting to get very disappointed with this Hub Pages site.

      Participation does increase Hubscore, but it's not by much.

      Original quality hubs (so no hubscore penalties on any of your hubs) + traffic should see your hubscores remain buoyant.

      And it's 40 for Hubscore and 75 for Hubber Score.

      You can always check the html code manually, or you can install a plugin that does this for you, if you are using Firefox.

      If there's been another change it would be good if HubPages HQ could verify it so I can update my hub on HubScore.
